It’s the most famous crosswalk in the world – and thanks to this webcam, you can watch live as a nonstop parade of people try to recreate one of the most famous album covers of all time.

Located in the north London neighborhood of St. John’s Wood, Abbey Road was the location of the Beatles’ famous “Abbey Road” album cover. As the camera clicked away, John, Paul, George and Ringo walked across the street and into pop history.

The photo was taken almost 50 years ago exactly — on Aug. 8, 1969 — and a half-century later, people are still recreating it — hundreds if not thousands of times a day.

And thanks to this webcam, you can watch them. It’s a fascinating guilty pleasure – watching waves of people walking across the Abbey Road crosswalk, all of them looking to do what the Beatles did 50 years ago.

As you’ll see, it’s not exactly safe, either. There’s no stoplight at Abbey Road, so the walkers need to dodge traffic as they attempt to recreate the photo.
